Chapter 24: Population Genetics

Page history last edited by Derek Weber 9 years, 4 months ago


Learning Objectives 

24.1 Genes in Populations

•   Explain the Hardy–Weinberg principle.

•   Describe the characteristics of a population that is in Hardy–Weinberg equilibrium.

•   Outline the differences between allele frequency and genotype frequency and how each contributes to the Hardy-Weinberg equation. 

•   Compare and contrast various microevolutionary forces. 

 

24.2 Natural Selection

•   Characterize the patterns of natural selection. 

•   Define evolutionary fitness.

•   Explain the different components of fitness.

•   Demonstrate how the success of different phenotypes can be compared by calculating their relative fitness.

 

24.3 Sexual Selection

•   Explain why intrasexual selection and intersexual selection causes the evolution of certain traits to occur differently in males and females of the same species.

 

24.4 Genetic Drift

•   Describe the phenomena of bottleneck effect and founder effect and explain how they contribute to changes in allelic frequencies.

•   Explain what is sometimes referred to as "survival of the luckiest." 

 

24.5 Migration and Nonrandom Mating

•   Describe how migration and nonrandom mating patters affect genetic variation in populations.
